Hi guys it's Joel & Lia and we're here at Borough Market for the pancake day race of the year.
It's Pancake Day today which is a celebration we have in
the UK every single year so we're gonna tell you five things about pancake day
that you didn't know ... hopefully.
So what is pancake day? Pancake day is traditionally known
as Shrove Tuesday which is the day before Ash Wednesday and that marks the
start of Lent. The reason people make pancakes is because way back in the day
people used to get rid of all of their fatty things so their milk their eggs
their butter and then what better thing to make with all those ingredients than
pancakes?! Perfect! So when is pancake day? well pancake day varies every year but it's
usually between February and March and it always depends upon the date of
Easter so why are pancakes flat? it's because we don't actually put baking
soda in our pancakes so I think they're also known as crepes or crepes depending
on how you pronounce them but I know they are very different
American fluffy pancakes and that's why we don't put baking soda in.
So our pancakes are completely flat and they can be rolled or folded and I love
having lemon and sugar inside my pancakes yeah but you can have savoury pancakes
as well you can put some cheese or ham in there you can have it with anything but
pancake day is certainly not something we do every day, no, it's just today
it's such a treat but today is fairly unique do people around the UK do
pancake day races? I don't know I've never actually heard of it before I've
not heard of anyone like running up and down doing a relay race with a
pancake in a pan it reminds me a sports day at school with the egg and spoon
oh my gosh I used to love the relay race but I love that it's not entirely on you
it's like a team to get it right but no this is certainly not a
strictly British tradition I think it's just a fun little thing that people tend
to do here in Borough Market. So thanks Borough Market for hosting this, this has been a
lot of fun. Yeah, it has. we're gonna get ourselves a pancake now if you enjoyed
the video don't forget to give it a like and subscribe for new videos every
single week. Thanks guys, bye!
